Always Coffee... Card

Hi everyone :-D 

Today I am joining in the super fun event Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, hosted by very talented and friendly Lady, Amy Tsuruta of Tsuruta Designs.

Once again, Amy organized super fun blog hop with a lot of super sponsors. For more information hop over to Fall Coffee Lovers Blog hop.

I thought I won't join in this season because I'm in the middle of moving. So many things done and still a lot of to do, but I had to sit down and relax. Result is this Always Coffee... Card. :-D

I used 'But First Coffee' Digital Cut File from 17 Turtles by Juliana Michaels. Juliana is generously sharing this one for free on blog (links provided). Thank you Juliana! :-D

I printed .png files she shared on two different Kraft papers, cut them out and glued pieces together. I stamped acorns and leaves on cup, glued a piece of thread on it and Coffee bean. I added 3-D foam behind cup to pop it up on card.

Stamps I used are from Jane's Doodles 'Autumn Blessings' stamp set. Looove this one! I was so happy when I received it from Jane. :-D

For stamping I used Dye Ink and Distress Inks (see full list below).

'Always' was a perfect sentiment for this card. I got this wooden chip as a blog hop prize from Simon Says Stamp. :-D
